Description

Fludrocortisone acetate is a synthetic corticosteroid that is used to treat adrenocortical insufficiency (Addison’s disease) in dogs and cats. It has both glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid activity, and it is a stronger mineralocorticoid. Its potency is 125 times that of hydrocortisone. Fludrocortisone acetate may also be used as an adjunct to the treatment of hyperkalemia.

Fludrocortisone acetate is a mineralocorticoid, a hormone that helps to regulate the concentration of sodium and potassium in the body. It is used to treat Addison’s disease (adrenocortical insufficiency, hypoadrenocorticism). This condition often requires life time treatment. Fludrocortisone may also be used to lower the potassium level in animals with hyperkalemia (high blood levels of potassium).
